Hi guys! A few posts back I had shared with you two different ways to wear a NICHOLAS dress. If you will recall, NICHOLAS is a chic, feminine Australian brand that’s also my latest obsession. Their pieces are always so versatile, and to demonstrate that, I’m bringing the multi-purpose theme back again – one NICHOLAS floral top, two ways ✌?

Everything about this blouse just screams SPRING – its gorgeous floral print, the delicate ruffle details, and of course the bow-tie front. You’ve probably seen me donning bow-tie tops or dresses a few times by now. It’s classy with a touch of youthfulness, perfect for both work and play. Style this blouse with a pair of wide leg trousers and you’re instantly boardroom ready. Switch out those pants for some distressed denim and you’re good to go for drinks with your girlfriends. You may even be able to wear this out to a nice date-night dinner with black leather pants and pumps – talk about versatility!

The color red has historically not been my favorite color – can probably count on one hand how many red pieces I own – but I’ve slowly warmed up to it (no pun intended!). Over the past year I’ve learned to gradually embrace red, starting with red lips, bags, shoes, and now a vibrant blouse. It was also assuring to hear Glenda Bailey at the Harper Bazzar “What to Wear S/S 2017” luncheon last week listing pink and red as two of the hottest trends this year. If you’re not a fan of the color like me, I highly recommend trying it out in small doses. Besides, there’s no better time to experiment with red than spring! ?

    Both ways look good but the weekday workwear if my fave! Perhaps it’s got something to do with my obsession with wide leg trousers!

    Price per wear is such an important factor when buying new pieces! It’s so important they can be styled in multiple ways like this.
